June is here! As summer slowly creeps in, regardless of whether or not the weather holds up, we’re all getting into that summery mood. We’re ready for barbecues, pints, letting go and, more importantly, checking out some June festivals!
While many wait for later in the year to check out some festivals, we believe waiting is for the weak. There are so many cracking festivals in June that we know will be killer. If you can handle June festivals, here are the ones we genuinely can't wait for.
It’s not every day that a festival pops up in Belfast, but when it happens, the lineup’s killer. At least that’s the case with AVA. Belfast natives Bicep are set to headline. They'll be performing alongside Mura Masa, Jon Hopkins, Ross From Friends, and more for a hectic celebration of banging tunes, everflowing drinks and the four day weekend. AVA effortlessly stands out from the other June festivals.
We doubt you need much of an introduction to Primavera, it’s a legendary festival that most will have heard of. But just look at that lineup! This is another of the June festivals that’ll please everyone with performances from the biggest artists. There’s indie pioneers The Strokes, experimental hip hop icon Tyler, the Creator, experimental rock legend Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, all the DJs your heart desires, and about a million other artists we’d love to dive into. But we need to move on to the other June festivals we can’t wait for…
But if you aren’t feeling like leaving the country, there are plenty at home that are brilliant, too. Baltic Weekender is one of our favourite June festivals, and it’s back in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. This year you can expect Ben UFO, Helena Hauff, Ross From Friends, DJ Seinfeld, Hunee, Skepsis, Dowd, and more. It always goes down a treat, and this year will be no different. And if you're not ready for the party to finish, there are After Dark after parties waiting for you to tear them up too.
